This book reminded me a great deal of the television show, Skins. It was raunchy, realistic, touching, disturbing, and frustrating all at the same time. From primarily a male perspective, Burgess gives us all some frightening insight into the minds of seventeen year old boys. I think the book will resonate with a lot of teenage boys, but any librarians out there better know the parents of those boys before recommending the book. The book talks in detail about sex, drugs, and abuse. While I think this is important, some parents may not be excited about their seventeen year old boys reading this book. Having had brothers, I think this book really hits home, but again, it hits home in its explicit, uncensored nature.
